My mum put fat down it and now its all blocked.
I know stupid
but anyways does anyone know how we can get it unblocked?
FILL YOUR SINK WITH HOT WATER DETERGENT AND WASHING UP LIQUID. PULL THE PLUG OUT AND LEAVE THE HOT WATER RUNNING. IF HIS DOES NOT WORK UNSCREW THE U BEND UNDER THE SINK AND PROD IT WITH A PAINT BRUSH OR SOME THING SIMILAR
Hot water works if you have any flow through the drain. But if it is completely blocked you need either "Drano" or "Liquid Plumber" to pour down into the trap to dissolve the grease/fat. You can also use a plunger to force the water down through the blockage. Once it starts to drain pour boiling water down to dissolve the grease/fat.
Any IDIOT That tells you to use hot water is a fool.
A. Clean the trap out first. That is the U shaped thingy below the sink. Make sure you give it a good scrubbing as it will be disgusting to just about anyone that looks at its contents.
B. Use Foaming Drano, as the second and most important product. Follow the directions and you will be surprised.
C. Use a natural bacterial remover at least a week later. After this, you will experience little, if any, issues for the following few years. I'll guarantee it. Unless of course, you are foolish enough to continually pour fat down the system.
Hot water MASKS issues. Fat and starch, the greatest isues involved in a slow or stopped pipe are real.
Who amI... A REAL MAN you ***.
I would guess that there is more than just the fat blocking the drain unless she put a whole cow down there. You'll probably want to use draino to see if that will unblock it. If that doesn't work, take the trap off and clean it out by hand as there's a good chance the blockage is in the trap.
